Maytime walk at Llyn Llech Owain

I had a phonecall from a good friend of mine today, suggesting we meet up for a walk.  It was something we had been planning for a while.  Life had got in the way over the past 3 years or so and we had a lot of catching up to do.

We went to Llyn Llech Owain Country Park, so she could walk her dogs (a Jack Russell and two rescue Greyhounds).  As you can see, the weather was delightful.

A splendid Hotel had been set up for wildlife.

Sulphur Tuft fungi growing in the pine needles.

This is one of the lakes on the site, provided with a viewing hide.  It was such a beautiful spot.

You may just be able to see a Canada Goose on the water about 3/4 of the way across the photo (and half way down).

There were lovely views.  I couldn't help thinking of Edward Thomas when he wandered here.

Curiously-bent trees like the ribs of an old wooden ship.

Early Purple Orchid.

Hurry up with that water Mum!


  1. What a wonderful walk, the views are amazing and oh so peaceful.


  2. Lovely walk and I love your header photo.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. "Codlinsandcream2" has been included in Sites To See #370. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

  4. Gorgeous weather at present, isn't it? Lovely to be outside and what a pretty place you went to. Love the last shot of the doggies x

  5. I saw a purple orchid on the coastal path on Thursday. Lovely scenery on your walk.

  6. What a beautiful place to walk - I love the photo of the clouds reflected in the lake. I've been working my way through Richard Jefferies and Edward Thomas's writings and just started "In Pursuit of Spring".

  7. How lovely to meet your old friend again, for a walk in such a beautiful place.

  8. Thank you all. RR - I got a new Richard Jefferies recently. Enjoy In Pursuit of Spring.
